A pro-amnesty group brought Jose Flores, an illegal alien, and two of his children (a 7-year old and 13-year old, both born in the U.S.) to a Walker campaign stop in Walker’s hometown in Iowa. This is a tactic commonly used in hometown districts of Members of Congress and in the halls of Congress here in the Capitol. The effort often works either in embarrassing the politician or getting the politician to back down from previous anti-amnesty positions.

Knowing the national press corps would be following his every move and statement, the pro-amnesty forces surely thought they could force one of those errors while hammering the governor for being one of 26 who are part of the lawsuit that has stopped Pres. Obama’s 2014 executive amnesty for months now.

The plan backfired on the open-borders activists, though, as many of the media reported that Walker showed attributes of leadership in the way he handled a highly planned ambush by his opposition.

In “Scott Walker tells undocumented worker that immigrants must follow the law” Jenna Johnson of the Washington Post writes:

It was an opportunity for Walker to demonstrate how he calmly fights back against challenges from activists. He was forceful as he told the Flores family that immigrants must follow the rules, but he added, “I completely sympathize with the situation you’re all in and others are in.” One of the activists, Sam Freeman of Wi sconsin’s Voces de la Frontera, cut the governor off and shouted, “So that’s why you want to separate their family?” Walker curtly said that he wanted to talk only with the family and that their plight is the reason the United States must go forward with “putting in place a logical system.” To address illegal immigration , Walker said, the nation needs to secure the border and enforce its laws before it can focus on other issues. An immigration system cannot come at the cost of American workers and their wages, he added. “When are you guys going to fix the immigration system?” Flores said. “When are you guys going to take the time to fix immigration reform? So we’ve got to be deported?” Walker stayed on message, listing his immigration talking points and criticizing Obama for not fixing the system. He also said that he supported the lawsuit Wisconsin filed to stop Obama’s executive action. “No man or woman is ab ove the law in this country,” Walker said. “That’s the beauty of America.” Then Luis Flores jumped in: “Do you want me, like, to come home — come from school and my dad get deported?” “No, that’s not what I’m talking about,” Walker said. “You mentioned Waukesha. I’ve got two nieces who go to school there as well. — I appreciate kids like you and kids like them, so that’s not what my point is. My point is that in America, nobody is above the law.”

The Wall Street Journal filled in other parts of the encounter that made Walker’s steadfastness even more impressive. In “Scott Walker, Confronted by Immigrant in Iowa, Blames Obama for Family’s Uncertainty,” Reid Epstein wrote:

Leslie was with her father, Jose, an undocumented immigrant who works as a painter, and 7-year-old brother Luis — told the dozen or so reporters traveling with the Walker campaign their plight. Jose Flores, 38 years old, came to the U.S. illegally from Mexico 19 years ago. Leslie had tears welling in her left eye and streaming down her cheek. . . . Young Luis asked Mr. Walker: “Do you want me to come home from school and my dad got deported?” Mr. Walker said that’s not his plan. “That’s not what I’m talking about,” he said. “My point i s that, in America, no one person is above the law. The president can’t make the law just because he says it.”

I didn’t notice any of the mainstream media pointing out the irony that the illegal foreign painter who said he lived in constant fear of being deported had nonetheless traveled to another state t

As many of you know, Ken Clark (Freedom 560), Randy Corporon (Wake Up with Randy Corporon) and Kris Cook (Grassroots Radio) handed in their resignations after being told they could not have Tom Tancredo, Steve House or anyone else involved with the Steve House debacle on their radio programs.

Tom Tancredo called into Randy’s program and was cutoff in mid sentence. The three were all told they had done their last show on KLZ 560.

Hats off to them for handing in their resignations and standing on principles of Freedom, Liberty, Truth and Integrity!  Their programs exemplified freedom of speech and getting to the bottom of top stories by talking to those directly involved in the issue at hand.

Integrity is something missing in our elected officials because they all seem to want to go along to get along. That, my friends is no way to govern with the leadership needed to bring our country back from the abyss it is rapidly sinking in to.

We need to support these Defenders of Liberty in their next endeavors. We need to do this to show Colorado that standing on principles and what is right will be defended. We need to show, by our actions that we will remain strong and committed to Individual Liberty and Smaller Government.

Ken Clark and Randy Corporon have an opportunity this Friday to fill in for Peter Boyles on AM 719 KNUS from 5:00 Am until 9:00 AM. Set you alarm clocks and listen in for what is shaping up to be a whambastic four hours of a Liberty Finds A Way radio program.  We can set the ratings higher than ever by calling in to the show, Let’s jam the lines.

The weather on Saturday looks good and remember we had to cancel the last meeting on Global Warming because of SNOW. On this coming Saturday, Professor Rich Keen will talk give a talk on “Global Warming, Science Fiction or Political Science”. Please come. The meeting is at Cheesy Lees and will begin at 1:30. Dr. Keen looks forward to meeting all interested people.
Thanks, Mack, Bill, Judy and Michelle 

June 6, is D-Day.  This is the day we will meet to hear about Global Warming from CU professor of Climatology, Dr. Richard Keen.  We will meet at Cheesy Lees and Dr. Keen will talk at 1:30.  Come early and enjoy some pizza before the great presentation.

Rich had a suddenly busy April climate wise.  He was on Heartland’s “behind the lines” raid on the Vatican to “Tell Pope Francis: Global Warming Is Not a Crisis” https://www.heartland.org/Vatican-Environment-Workshop , and I think the message is filtering through to him.  You my also be interested in a parallel effort, “An Open Letter to Pope Francis on Climate Change” See: http://www.cornwallalliance.org/anopenlettertopopefrancisonclimatechange/

It appears some UN socialists have the pope’s ear and are trying to recruit him, and the Church, behind UN policies on climate change, otherwise known as the foot in the door, or camel’s nose under tent, for implementing their population policies.


Thanks, Mack, Bill, Judy and Michelle
